planned and organized In Colombia.
The better part of his army was com

A Boer force is threatening Chief

country lies at the extreme northwest
of the Transvaal and includes Bech-

for the Boers to provoke war among

Is that the Boer force Intends
to destroy the i all way to Buluwayo

there have been stories of a Rhodeslan
